Lion's Den Hotel

Hotel in Cooktown to the Bloomfield River

An iconic oasis with a tangible history dating back to 1875 and a heap of memorabilia on the walls. You'll find fuel, ice-cold beer, strong coffee, awesome pizzas, pub meals ($15 to $32) and often live music. Spend a night if you can, camping or in one of the pole-tent cabins. Don't miss a swim in the flowing croc-free creek.
